Only 37 new positive results showed on the Tennessee Department of Health’s daily report, with cases now standing at 2,599 overall.

There are 1,502 active cases in the county, and 1,097 people have recovered thus far.

18 people have died, and 31,725 negative tests have been conducted. 

TDOH has reported a total of 81,944 cases of COVID-19 across the state, up 2,190 cases since Monday on 23,028 test results.

Of the total cases, 47,852 people have recovered, 3,798 have been hospitalized and 871 have died — up 1,878, 82 and 24, respectively, from the numbers 24 hours earlier. 

The number of active cases in Tennessee has risen 47 percent in the past two weeks, a slightly slower rate of growth than a few weeks ago. On Tuesday, the state reported an all-time high of 33,221 residents currently infected with the virus. 

The number of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 has risen more than 33 percent in the past two weeks with 1,038 people hospitalized throughout 104 facilities statewide. The state surpassed 1,000 patients currently hospitalized due to COVID-19 on Saturday but due to regular data collection delays were unable to report it until today.

In terms of capacity, the state reports that 20 percent of inpatient beds and 19 percent of ICU beds remain available. Nearly 67 percent of the state’s ventilator supply — which was low in March until officials acquired about 1,000 more — is still available. "    - Per Kara Hartnett with Williamson Homepage
